Gratitude: Mike and Elizabeth
My long-time pal Mike and I took a walk along the Sonoma Coast today. We have a lot in common: we've both been married forever, we've both been elementary school teachers forever, we met sailing, we both love hiking, kayaking, biking. We both filed for conscientious objector status, and Mike actually served it out (I managed to avoid Vietnam by staying in college!) We met, gee, in 1979, sailing Lasers. If Alden lived 'round here, there'd be three of us.
Elizabeth called me this morning from Boston where she's visiting her best friend and looking over the city as a possible city in which to do her medical residency. We chatted over the phone for most of an hour.
So tonight, I'm grateful for Mike and Elizabeth.
